OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A Gretna woman already serving time for tax evasion has been sentenced to more prison.

Caroline Richardson was sentenced Tuesday in Douglas County District Court to 14 to 20 years for unlawful taking. She will be eligible for parole after she serves nearly nine years.

Omaha television station KETV reports ( ) Richardson pleaded guilty earlier this month in connection to the theft of more than $4 million from her former employer, Omaha-based Colombo Candy and Tobacco.

Richardson is currently serving time on tax evasion charges related to the embezzlement. Her sentence Tuesday will run partially consecutive to her first sentence.
